Hyundai Palisade launched in December last year. But his debut began this year. Carrying the pacemaker R 2.2L CRDi four cylinder in line with diesel. With the help of turbo e-VGT, it is able to supply a maximum twist moment of 440 Nm. Then the piston dance gives 200 PS. This turbodiesel engine is claimed by the manufacturer to be very efficient, environmentally friendly, powerful. At the same time produce the best power output in its class, but still meet exhaust emission rules.

The power distributor uses an 8-speed automatic transmission that can be set with shift-by-wire (SBW) type buttons. The SUV also provides four driving modes. Comfort for everyday driving activities. ECO to maintain optimal fuel efficiency. Sport mode to support the acceleration of the car is increasingly agile. The last smart driving style that uses learning algorithms. The system automatically adjusts the gear shift interval based on the driving pattern of the driver.

The CR-V facelift arrives feb. The Black Edition joins in December. The engine on the CR-V 1.5L Black Edition did not change because it was based on the Prestige variant. It relies on a four-cylinder VTEC DOHC 16 valve turbo drive. More power outings are pangolins, obtained 190 PS at 5.6000 rpm and 240 Nm twist moment since 2,000 rpm. All are channeled via CVT Earth Dreams Technology transmission through front-wheel drive. There's a paddle shift as well. Power distribution is claimed to remain responsive but efficient.

You are treated to black chrome garnish, special edition emblems, smoked headlight extensions, dark 18-inch rims. Then when entering the cabin, the feel is the same from the exterior.

It is equipped with Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) and intercooler assistance. The diesel engine pumps 181 PS of power at 3,500 rpm. Next the optimal twist moment is 429 Nm at 2,500 rpm. The power bundle is channeled using only an 8-speed automatic transmission. This type of engine is more recommended than 2.5L. It's even more power than the Fortuner 2.4L turbo.

The GLX and Exceed trims rely on the DOHC's 4D56 solar drinking machine. It has a fuel volume of 2.5 liters DOHC plus turbo induction. The resultant power is much smaller, which is 136 PS at 4,000 rpm and 324 Nm twist moment since 2,000 rpm. Power distribution uses the choice of a five-speed manual transmission or a five-speed conventional matik. It feels like a responsibility, if you don't take dakar.

Then the ground clearance is as high as 200 mm. The impression of a compact SUV is so obvious. That's thanks to the application of thick trapezoidal bumpers, accompanied by sharp, aggressive elbow angles in front. In type 1.0T, there is illuminating headlamp, daytime running light (DRL), and sequential turn lamp all-LED. Then a 17-inch rim.

Daihatsu Rocky

Rocky is the same, launching in April along with Raize. There are two machines with different tasks. Turbo trim is prepared to target middle to upper consumers. Instead, the N.A. engine nets the middle to lower level. So that all slices of the market can be reached Astra Daihatsu Motor (ADM). Mechanical 1.2-liter Rocky runway is classified as a new type, hence it is said to be the world premiere. No other model has been used yet.

WA-VE engine configuration uses three cylinders 12 valves, DOHC Dual VVT-i. The step diameter alone is different from the turbo variant, or even the Sigra 3NR-VE. It has a size of 75.3 mm x 94.1 mm. The resultant internal combustion of the Rocky 1.2L injection engine can soar to 88 PS at 6,000 rpm. The maximum twist moment is achieved 113 Nm at 4,500 rpm.

Br-V 2022 was unveiled in September. It uses a new engine like the 2021 Honda City Hatchback. Embedded engine coded L15ZF i-VTEC four-cylinder Double Over Head Camshaft (DOHC). Older models still use SOHC. The pacemaker gives a maximum pulse of up to 121 PS at 6,600 rpm. Then the optimal twist moment is achieved 145 Nm at 4,300 rpm. Kinetic energy distribution option using a six-speed manual transmis or CVT. All are channeled to the front wheel.

Safety features can still keep pace with opponents. For example, in the form of ABS + EBD braking system, Vehicle Start Assist (VSA) to maintain vehicle stability. As well as Hill Start Assist (HSA) to facilitate acceleration after stopping on the ramp. In terms of security, it is supported immobilizer and alarm system as standard. About the evolution of the body. The 2022 Honda BR-V wears an inverted trapezoidal-style front grille that connects with two main eyes. The arranged vertical blades adorn the chromium-clad grille.
